Housing Equity We believe that all people should have access to housing they can afford. In January 2021, Amazon launched the Amazon Housing Equity Fund , a commitment of over $2 billion to preserve and create more than 20,000 affordable homes in three communities where we have a high concentration of employees: Washington state’s Puget Sound region; Washington, D.C., and Arlington, Virginia; and Nashville, Tennessee. The Housing Equity Fund helps create inclusive housing developments and preserve existing housing through low-rate loans and grants to community-based organizations, mission-driven housing providers, traditional and nontraditional public agencies, and minority- led organizations. As of March 2022, the Amazon Housing Equity Fund had a significant, positive impact on rental affordability in communities Amazon calls home, with more than $1.2 billion in loans and grants committed. These commitments have preserved or created over 8,000 affordable units to house more than 18,000 people. $1.2B+ Loans and grants funded 8K+ Affordable homes created or preserved 18K+ People supported Learn more about our progress in our Housing Equity Fund Impact Report . 2021 Sustainability Report Introduction I Environment I Society I Governance I Appendix 73
